These gentlemen speak truth. I just left Goodwill about an hour ago and scored 2 flannel suits for the cheap.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: thrift store season.
Any avid thrifter will tell you that January is the month for thrifting. The reason? Rich people donate at the end of the year for the tax write-off. Those donations filter through the supply chain and hit stores throughout January.
My hope is that this year will be a good one - we’ve had a few down years in thrifting as people have been feeling broke and hanging on to their stuff rather than donating. With things looking better, especially for the rich, my fingers are crossed for a banner crop.
So: go forth and thrift!
i agree. my two GREAT local salvation armies have provided me with many treasures. looking forward to oh so many more to come in the year 2011 and on…
